Thrifting Is Even Better When The Items are Put in Use

Thrifting can be so much fun and when you decide what to do with your finds, it is even better.

Yesterday we made a plant stand from this metal stand that was in a storage unit my husband bought a couple of years ago (just like on Storage Wars Lol)! I had looked at this stand the other day and remembered a metal basket a friend had given me. Sure enough…. it fit. So he put the basket on the stand and secured it, then spray painted the base black. Voila`! Instant plant stand!

I have no idea what it was originally, but there were two of them. One is in our flower bed holding a blue gazing ball I made last year.

Thus cool urn thing was in the storage unit, too. The patina on that urn after being in the weather for a year! ❤️

When I posted this photo in one of my groups, someone asked me if the metal piece on the right was an easel. I hadn’t thought of that but I believe it is now it was pointed out. They suggested adding a frame and centering it over a pretty plant, etc. Now I’m going to have to try that!

I had to borrow my Portulaca (It looks so good right now and has really grown) off my big plant stand to get a photo, but I’m thinking of planting just some ivy so it will trail down the sides. We still have some coming up around the deck we can’t get rid of. Surely I won’t kill it.

Anyway…..it is so much fun making something out of nothing.
